3D Mapping

Obsidian specialise in photogrammetry 3D mapping. Our drone (UAV) pilots are industry experienced in land surveying and construction. Our cloud-based 3D mapping software uses powerful servers to plot and construct the 3D model. It identifies millions of points in the overlapping high resolution aerial images and calculates a 3D point cloud which is a set of points defined by the X, Y and Z coordinates as well as colour.

At this development we were able to map out the site in less than 1 hour. The 3D model allowed us to calculate critical volumes to enable accurate costing for cut and fill exercises.

The map also provided the client with the ability to walkthrough the site to give a real impression of the current surroundings.
